Rain, shine, and repeat

Changeable weather means lots of interesting skies.  A rainbow had just faded last night and the golden pink glow seemed to light the heavy clouds over Island Bay.

But the colours quickly paled to soft pinky greys over the calm waters of the bay.

Today more showers, then sun, then rain - and another rainbow.

A midafternoon break in the weather, but the clouds suggest more rain to come.  Rainbows are often welcomed as a sign that the rain is breaking.  But when I think of the dry period in summer I realise that the rainbow message is welcome both ways - that rain has happened and that the sun will shine.
